Analog Devices has added the ADcmXL 1021-1 Vibration Sensor Module to its ever-expanding portfolio.
Intended for use in industrial and transportation condition-based monitoring systems, this single-axis MEMS-based vibration sensor detects early signs of mechanical wear that may lead to machine failure. The module includes a wide-bandwidth, low-noise MEMS accelerometer together with an ADC and signal processing chain.
The device is supplied in a 23.7mm x 27mm x 12.4mm aluminium package with four mounting flanges to support installation with standard machine screws. This package gives consistent mechanical coupling to the core sensors across a wide frequency range. The electrical interface is through a 14-pin connector on a 36mm flexible cable, which allows a broad range of location and orientation options for system mating connectors.
The device only requires a single, 3.3V power supply and supports an operating temperature range of -40C to +105C
Typical applications include vibration analysis, safety shutoff sensing, machine health, CBM systems, instrumentation, and diagnostics.
